My Maison Secondaire is semidetached. My French neighbour has built a timber terrace that extends right up to our mutual boundary (and in fact slightly over it).
Since his land is much higher than mine above the retaining wall that forms the boundary, his new jerry built timber terrace looks directly down into my conservatory. As such I have lost the privacy I once enjoyed.
I’m told that new construction must be set back 3m from the boundary.
Does anyone know if this is correct and/or where I can access this urban planning information formally ?
As a side note, my neighbour failed to seek planning approval for his entire ugly, massive, jerrybuilt new garden construction and the local Mairie, under the authority of the various other Government Agencies, has ordered him to demolish the lot. But I’m not holding my breath…
